I have shown a few photos lately of howler monkeys crossing the road near our condo. Today I am showing a photo of a howler in a more natural setting, up in a tree. I had to shoot the photo through the palm fronds of a tree near our condo.
Their howls can be heard as far as 3 miles (4.8 km) away. The purpose of the howls is thought to maintain spacing between the territories of different groups of howlers. They travel in groups, sometimes as large as 15.
We have photos of the charming town of Adare, Ireland, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
